While OnMyWay’s mission is to end the texting and driving trend – texting is not the only form of distracted driving. Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention away from the primary task of driving. Although texting does account for most distracted driving accidents and fatalities, there are other behaviors we need to be cognizant of when hitting the road!
Driving with pets: Our furry friends can be quite the distraction when behind the wheel. Not to mention, our laps are the worst place for our pets while driving. Keep your passengers (furry and human) safe and make sure they are in the proper seat, preferably harnessed, while you’re focusing on the roads!
Makeup: Ladies, we have all been here once or twice. Late to the office and need to do your makeup on the fly? Take 5 and do it at home as this is definitely not conducive to safe driving! You definitely can’t focus on traffic AND apply blush at the same time.
Eating: Eating in the car is extremely common – especially with drive-thru options popping up left and right. While it is extremely convenient, driving with one hand while the other grips your Chick Fil A spicy chicken sandwich is not the way to drive!
What we have learned is there are tons of other distractions we face in the car – but the good news? OnMyWay is working to change the culture on the roads. We want to make distracted driving as a whole a thing of the past. OnMyWay incentivizes its users to focus on the road and has seen results! With millions of users, we will not stop until distracted driving ends.
